This is a question Fire!

We were all in my aunt's kitchen at the back of her huge rambling Victorian house. I was only small and had wandered off to go to the loo, but given up after finding the hall full of smoke. "That was quick," my mum said after a few minutes. "Yes - it's all smoky," I replied.

I've never seen adults move so fast.

So, like my cousin who'd managed to set fire to the roof, tell us your fire stories.

Eyebrows and Beans!!!!
At my old school, in the science block, we had gas taps on all the tables. Not a bright idea in my opinion but never mind......anyway me and my friend (who we will refer to as Lee.....as that is his name), were larking about and he decided it would be hilarious to take in a mouthful of gas, from said gas taps. and light his breath as he breathed out. Cue hilarity for the rest of the week as Lee has to attend all his classes lacking any eyebrows.....hahaha the image still makes me laugh.

Story 2 me and another group of friends (this was about 2 years later, you'd think id have matured by then....you'd be wrong of course....), decided to go camping in the nearby woods. couple of hours after sunset and were all a bit oiled on chep cider, our attention inevitably gets drawn to the camp fire, and what would make the best explosion, or be the most flammable. Went through usual items, lighters, deodarent, ect, until we decide to throw a can of beans on the fire unopened........nothing happened for a good 7-8 minutes lulling us into thinking that nothing was going to happen, so we start to return from our respective hiding places when BOOM!!!!!!!!! The loudest explosion i had ever heard, (ive heard louder since but this was a while ago), and beans and bits of can shot past us like grenade shrapnel. How none of us was hurt is somewhat of a miricle as the tent nearest to the fire, which had blown itself out, was completely destroyed.
Morale of story.....dont be an idiot!
